No, we don't have background checks for "ALL GUN BUYERS" as stated in the article posted.  For example, there are exclusions at gun shows, internet sales and person-to-person sales.  Most intelligent adults understand that and can read the aricles posted with the topic.  But thanks anyway.....

 

and BTW......

NEWS FLASH!

 

We already have background checks...

 

Consider connecting mental health records to the databases used in the current background checks.

Poll: Americans don't expect Congress to act on gun laws

 

WASHINGTON – Americans doubt Congress will enact new gun laws despite a spate of mass shootings this summer that rattled the country.

 

As lawmakers return to Washington,  a nationwide USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll found that less than a quarter of Americans think Congress will pass significant gun control legislation over the next year.

 

That’s despite the fact that the poll also found broad support for further controls over who can get a gun.

 

“Finally, a poll result that shows unanimity in the United States,” David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center in Boston, said of the widespread support for universal background checks across every demographic including geography, gender, age, race, and political party affiliation.

 

“If there ever was a time for lawmakers from both parties to act, it is now.”

The USA TODAY/Suffolk Poll of 1,000 registered voters, taken by landline and cell phone from Aug. 20-25, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

In 2018 97% Supported Gun Background Checks

Poll: 97 percent support background checks for all gun buyers in Feb. 2018

 

And what did the GOP and trump DO????

 

Sucked up to the NRA.....

 

And how many have been killed since then????

 

Blood is on their hands.....

 

Support for universal background checks has hit a record high, according to a new poll conducted in the wake of last week's deadly school shooting in Florida.

 

Ninety-seven percent of those surveyed in the Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday said they support requiring background checks for all gun buyers, while just 2 percent were opposed.

 

That's up from the 95 percent support found in Quinnipiac polls released in mid-November and mid-December, which were themselves record highs since the poll began asking the question in early 2013 following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn.

 

The Quinnipiac poll conducted in November came after a mass shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

 

The national debate over gun control was reignited last week after a gunman opened fire at a high school in Parkland, Fla., killing 17 people and injuring more than a dozen others.

 

The suspect, Nikolas Cruz, was able to purchase an AR-15 rifle last year despite the FBI having received red flags and warnings about the teenager. Democrats and gun control advocates have called for tighter gun control laws in response to the shooting. 

 

The latest Quinnipiac poll was conducted Feb. 16–19 among 1,249 voters across the country and has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.
